Undulating transmit audio in HF programs #draws

Mitch Winkle
 
Edited

DRAWS image Beta13

I am getting output audio which undulates when using either FLDIGI or JS8Call (or even when just using the TUNE button in FLDIGI).

Has anyone run across this?

My draws-manager has the other radio port OFF and I have set TX audio levels based on the mW p-p value of my radio (60).

Receive audio on the Left radio port is great and decodes like a champ. 

Receive audio when enabling and using the Right radio port is a very very low level.  It's so low FLDIGI will not show a waterfall with the lower limit set to -20 in the program.  the same audio levels were used on the Right port as the left port.

Re: no PTT with FT857D, DRAWS HAT and 6 pin miniDIN cable

 

I am not where I can look right now, but seem to recall WSJT (FT8) does not implement GPIO PTT, so you have to use CAT through hamlib or VOX.  Fldigi has a setting for GPIO PTT on a tab beyond the CAT setup.

The software I plan to use requires the SQL signal to key up PTT in a
VoIP application. As stated in my original email:

With the Pi acting as a WiFi access point, I should be able to use a
Mumble VoIP server to allow my mobile phone to connect and act as a
"cross-band repeater".

Thus when operating a check-point (like I was for the Yarraman to
Wulkuraka bike ride¹ last year), instead of being tethered to the
bicycle, I can plug my headset into my phone instead and still have
80m-70cm all-mode capability.
In short, I'll be doing FM and SSB voice via the DRAWS board.

I'll have a look at the schematic and see if I can do the 5V pull-up mod
on the DRAWS and see how that goes.

The DRAWS should supply voltage to the pi if your supplying 12v to the DRAWS unit input power. Dont power Pi separately

Hi all,

The DRAWS board arrived yesterday evening, and today I picked up a new
Raspberry Pi 3 to connect it… so far things seem to be working but I'm
yet to hook up a radio.

Now, with the predecessor board (which has seen some use as a packet
radio station), I had to make a small modification to get audio on the
FT-897/857…

https://stuartl.longlandclan.id.au/blog/2016/11/20/getting-the-udrc-ii-to-play-nice-with-the-yaesu-ft-897d/

I've also used this same board with an Yaesu FTM-350AR and a Icom 706 MkIIG.

For the DRAWS, I intend to use it on my bicycle, which runs a FT-857D.
The plan is I'll set up two transceivers: a Wouxun KG-UVD1P I have
laying around set on 145.175MHz for APRS; and use the other port going
to the data jack on the FT-857D. I'll use the DRAWS auxiliary port to
control the CAT interface.

With the Pi acting as a WiFi access point, I should be able to use a
Mumble VoIP server to allow my mobile phone to connect and act as a
"cross-band repeater".

Thus when operating a check-point (like I was for the Yarraman to
Wulkuraka bike ride¹ last year), instead of being tethered to the
bicycle, I can plug my headset into my phone instead and still have
80m-70cm all-mode capability.

For this to work, I still want to be able to use my radio normally, so
basically be able to plug the headset into the microphone/speaker jacks
on the set, and use it like I do now -- as Queensland road rules
preclude me from using a mobile phone whilst in transit *for any reason*
(unless I want an AU$1000 fine for my troubles).

Do I need a pull-up on the SQL lines like I did for the UDRC-II in order
to have normal audio on the FT-857D/897D?

I'm guessing I just hit it on a bad day.  Are there other mirrors around
for these images?
Well, got it down, and now I see why it's 2.6GB in size… it's a
full-blown desktop image. I usually like to start with a minimal image
and add what I need rather than starting with a big image and having to
slim it down.

I might have a look at this and see if a smaller image can't be
produced… I think a more "compact" image would be a little easier to handle.

Not difficult to have a small image which just downloads "the
essentials", then asks some further questions to install the rest
(including a full-blown GUI if needed).

I might look into this as I'd like something built on the Buster release
of Debian rather than Debian Stretch as some of the software I'm writing
will require it (or rather, require Python 3.6+; Buster ships with 3.7,
Stretch with 3.5).
